Phi Delta Theta to Host Cards for the Cure Poker Tournament

Phi Delta Theta of Southwestern College will host the Fifth Annual Cards for the Cure Poker Tournament Sunday, April 15, in the north exhibit building at the Cowley County Fairgrounds. There will be a grand prize of $1,000, with second through ninth place also receiving prizes.

The net proceeds will be split between the Phi Delta Theta Kansas Zeta community service fund and the ALS Association to fight Lou Gehrig’s disease.

“Helping out a charitable organization is always very rewarding,” said Hank Futhey, head of the Phi Delta Theta poker committee. “In the past, we have been able to donate $1,000 to the ALS Foundation and that just shows the success we have had with this tournament.”

Registration begins at noon and the tournament starts at 1 p.m. There will also be a consolation tournament beginning at 3 p.m. The cost is $45 with preregistration or $50 entry fee the day of the event. All Phi Delta Theta alumni and Southwestern College affiliates can play for $25. Fee for the consolation tournament is $15 fee. Seating will be limited at 200 players.
